JACKSON, Miss. - A federal lawsuit says a Mississippi grocery store manager groped female employees, used food to simulate a sexual organ and fired a woman who rejected his
advances.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the complaint Monday against Venture Inc., which runs the Sav-A-Lot store on Ellis Avenue in west Jackson.

Two other Sav-A-Lot locations currently operating in Jackson have a different owner.

The EEOC accuses operations manager Jeff Stewart of sexual misconduct since 2009 that was "open and notorious among employees, supervisors and managers."

Stewart didn't immediately respond to messages left Tuesday at the Ellis Avenue store.

A message left at Venture Inc. wasn't immediately returned.

The complaint didn't say if the store sold the food allegedly used to simulate a sex organ.
